University of Vermont Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship
The Clinical Neurophysiology Training Program at Fletcher Allen/University of Vermont is a one-year postgraduate fellowship designed to provide detailed knowledge of clinical neurophysiology including:
- anatomy and physiology of the nervous system
- technical principles for the performance and analysis of electrophysiologic signal
- the interpretation of normal and abnormal neurophysiologic studies
The traineeship is clinically oriented, though fellows are expected to initiate a research project during their tenure.
Training will be expected to meet the requirements for examination by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN)'s Added Qualifications for Clinical Neurophysiology and the American Association of Electrodiagnostic Medicine. An optional additional 12 months of training may be pursued at the mutual discretion of the fellow and the Director of Clinical Neurophysiology.
The program is under the direction of Dr. Keith J. Nagle. The attending staff consists of three faculty who have subspecialty training and expertise in clinical neurophysiology working within a robust academic Department of Neurology. The Division of Clinical Neurophysiology serves the University of Vermont' level.
